pam_stack(8)			  System Administrator's Manual 		     pam_stack(8)

       pam_stack - recurse into other PAM stacks

       auth required /lib/security/pam_stack.so service=foo
       session optional /lib/security/pam_stack.so service=foo
       password optional /lib/security/pam_stack.so service=foo
       account optional /lib/security/pam_stack.so service=foo

       In  a  nutshell, pam_stack lets you "call", from inside of the stack for a particular ser-
       vice, the stack defined for any another service.  The intention is to allow multiple  ser-
       vices  to  "include"  a system-wide setup, so that when that setup needs to be changed, it
       need only be changed in one place.

       debug  turns on debugging via syslog(3).

	      tells pam_stack.so to execute the stack defined for the service  name,  which  will
	      usually be another file in /etc/pam.d.

       auth required /lib/security/pam_stack.so service=system-auth
       auth required /lib/security/pam_shells.so
       auth sufficient /lib/security/pam_krb5.so
       auth sufficient /lib/security/pam_unix.so shadow nullok
       auth required /lib/security/pam_deny.so

       Because	recursion is fully supported, there is potential to really break things by having
       a stack call itself either directly or via mutual recursion.

       Let's hope not, but if you find any, please email the author.
